University Bans Christian Group for Requiring Leaders to Adhere to ‘Basic Biblical Truths of Christianity’
“TCF is the Tufts chapter of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, an evangelical Christian mission on college campuses across the country, and also has ties to the university Chaplaincy,” the Tufts Daily reports.
“The group had been operating in a state of suspended recognition after the Judiciary found that the group’s constitution excluded students from applying to leadership positions based on their beliefs. The clauses in question require that anyTCF member who wishes to apply for a leadership role must adhere to a series of tenets called a Basis of Faith, or eight ‘basic Biblical truths of Christianity.’
“The Judiciary last month recommended that TCF move the belief-based leadership requirements from the constitution’s bylaws, which are legally binding, to its mission statement, which is not.
The group is planning to appeal the student board’s decision.

Going forward, the school plans to steer clear of photos with religious overtones when it sends out emails promoting athletics.
